    Date protection


    I made a midp 2.0 game and now i wish to protect it against piracy. I was thinking about adding a date protection that checks the date when the game is first run and the date when the game was purchased. My questions are:

    1. Does java.util.Date return the Date in the same format for all devices? Is there a way of getting only the Month and the Day?
    2. How do i make that jar save a variable even after it closes? I want that after the first run of the game a variable will be changed so that the date check will be bypassed on future runs.

    Thank you!

    1) check the java.util.Calendar

    2) you could store the variable in RMS. Here is an example how to use recordStore for storing highscore list
